Egyptian Mummy Re-created in Ohio

| October 23, 2013 | 0 Comments

One of the most memorable exhibits at the Ohio Historical Society has been an Egyptian mummy.

Technology has allowed curators to now re-create her features using forensic reconstruction techniques so that for the first time, we can all see what she — perhaps — looked like.

Amunet, along with an exhibit of other transformative objects, from the rope used to execute Lincoln’s assassins to the dress Miss America wore — are part of a new exhibition that hopes to prompt reflection about the nature of transformation, and how it can impact our lives.
